Who was Dymoke White?

Sir Dymoke White, 2nd Baronet was a Conservative Party politician in England who served as Member of Parliament for Fareham in Hampshire from 1939 to 1950.

He was elected unopposed at a by-election in 1939, after the sitting MP Thomas Inskip was elevated to peerage as Viscount Caldecote.

Fareham had been a safe Conservative seat since the constituency was established in 1885, with a Conservative returned unopposed as recently as 1931, and where contested elections had produced huge Conservative majorities of. However at the 1945 general election, which the Labour Party won in a landslide, White's majority in Fareham was cut to only 5% of the votes.

The Fareham constituency was abolished in boundary changes for the 1950 general election, and White did not contest the new Gosport and Fareham constituency.
